SKILLS Talk – Episode 12 “GET THE BEST HAIRSTYLE BY YOURSELF”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some tips and advice on how to get the best hairstyle by yourself.

 

Tip #1. NEVER neglect your hair wash – The hair wash is the MAIN KEY in achieving the best hairstyle. Your hair like your skin is made with a special type of protein called “Keratin” that is found in your hair fiber, when the hair fiber gets dry your hair will always go to the direction of your hair growth and you will only able to control it if the hair is wet. That’s why whenever you wash your hair with the proper shampoo and conditioner, the ingredients inside will make your hair more manageable and flexible when you begin your hairstyle.

Hairwash is the most important and the first initial step in achieving an easy hairstyle.

 

Tip #2. PROPER usage of the Hair Dryer – The main purpose of the Hair Dryer is to dry the hair out and at the same ironing the hair fiber while maintaining the proper direction for the hairstyle that you are trying to achieve or your hair can stay still. The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage, and if you go for a short time you will achieve nothing or your hairstyle will only last you for a few hours, and that depends on the quality of the hairdryer, temperature and your hair thickness and texture. How do you find all that answer? Just ask your barber about all these specific details.

The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage.

 

Tip #3. The TECHNIQUE of using the Brush – There are many different types of brush with different types of use. The most common brush which is the Rolling brush, and as small as its size that will produce a sleek hair finish, and if the size is bigger that means you are increasing the puff. The puff is produced by the proper technique of the hairbrush along with the hairdryer. So if the direction that you like is against your hair mood then you have to make sure that you need to use the small rolling brush on the roots only with the short timing while your hairdryer is set in the highest temperature, that is the only way that you can control your hair against the natural direction. With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle and you can direct your hair in any direction.

With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle.

Tip #4. CHOOSE the Proper Hair Product for your Finishing – Make sure you use the proper hair product for yourself, if you are looking for a puffy hairstyle avoid using any hair product that will give you sleek finishing look like Pomade or Gel because it changes your hair fiber and it decreases the volume and there where you lose your puff. And if you are looking for a sleek hairstyle you need to make sure to avoid any Matte or Fiber because this will increase the puff in your hair and it is made only to increase the volume in your hair.

LEFT (Matte Finishing), RIGHT (Sleek Finishing)

If you want your hairstyle to last you long if you are going to any occasion, then make sure to use the Proper Hair Spray which is Matte or Shiny depending on your preference, because this will hold your hair longer than usual, and your hair will not be affected by sweat and will not allow your hair fiber to fight back to the way your original hair looks like because usually, the hairstyle will only survive 3 to 4 hours before it starts to fight back and make your hair mess.

 

Using Hairspray during the Style Finishing

Hairspray will add extra 4-8 hours of hold on your hairstyle.

Lastly, the most important thing is when you enjoy your hairstyle for the whole day you always need to wash it during the night or before your sleep because the hair product can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

Washing your hair at the end of the day is the most important tip that you should never forget to avoid hair damage.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 11 “MUST-HAVE GROOMING PRODUCTS IF YOU ARE STAYING IN DUBAI”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the most important grooming products that you should have if you are a resident or you just started living here in Dubai.

 

Dubai is a beautiful city, a place of events, leisure and a lot of fun activities, but let’s not forget that the weather in this city especially in the summer is very hot and humid which can cause a lot of problems for our personal grooming care.

 

Haircare is very important if you are living in a Hot and Humid City like Dubai.

1st Product – Natural Shampoo and Conditioner

Make sure that you choose a Chemical-Free Shampoo/Conditioner and not just any Commercial Shampoo/Conditioner, having this product is a must, if you want to maintain the health and condition of your hair all throughout your stay in Dubai.

 

2nd Product – Hair Mask

The Hair Mask will make your hair more nourishable; it can help with the moisture and most importantly it can improve your scalp condition and boost the strength of your hair.

A proper combination of both can guarantee that all your hair care needs are covered and you won’t have to worry about suffering from any hair fall, dry scalp, dandruff, etc.

 

After Hair Care, let’s move on to Skin Care.

 

Next to Haircare is for your Skincare, it is also very important to have.

3rd Product – Facial Cleanser

The main purpose of using the Facial Cleanser is to remove all the accumulated dirt, oil, dead skin, and bacteria that your skin has absorbed all throughout your work and lifestyle activities. There is a lot of different types of Facial Cleanser and you should really find the product that is most suitable for your type of skin.

 

4th Product – Face Moisturizer

Unlike the Facial Cleanser, the Moisturizer acts as a barrier for your skin and keeps it hydrated and healthy. With the proper Face Moisturizer, your skin can help its balance making it healthier to avoid any skin condition.

 

A proper combination of both can guarantee that all your daily skincare needs are met.

That’s it for this episode, there is a lot of products that you need but for today I will only stick with the most important ones, so make sure that you don’t neglect this advice in order for you to have a healthy skin and hair all throughout your stay in Dubai.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 10 “WHY THE FADE IS THE BEST HAIRCUT?”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about the most popular and trendiest haircut/style called the “Fade”

 

Fade is considered to be the most popular haircut because of its elegant and classy look, it makes the person look sharp and neat that is why it is one of the most favorite types of Haircut that celebrities get due to the fact that it is very fashionable, can go with a lot of different hairstyles and it is perfect for all type of occasion or events.

 

Why Celebrities love the Fade

Fade is considered to be the most popular haircut because of its elegant and classy look.

There are 5 types of different fade style. It can go High Fade, Mid Fade, Low Fade, Taper, and Mohawk.

 

The type of fade varies depending on how aggressive you want your fade to look like, if you want to go for very aggressive then you go with the High Fade, if you want a little bit of aggressiveness and at the same time have semi elegant look then you stick with the Mid Fade, if you chose to be more elegant and classy then the Low Fade is for you.

 

5 Different Types of Fade Haircut

There are 5 Different Types of Fade, and the type varies depending on how aggressive you want your fade to look like.

If you want to have much lesser changes and you just mainly want to maintain your look but neater then the Taper is for you, Lastly, If you want to be more funky and stylish then the Mohawk is the best for you since it also can be aggressive depending as to how you chose to be depending on your hairstyle.

 

Once you’ve decided on the fade type the next process is to choose between the 3 types of finishing, 1st is the Dark Smooth finishing, Light Smooth finishing, and the Bald Skin finishing.

 

We decide the finishing based on your Head Structure, Hair Texture, Your Job or Industry, Age, and Hairstyle, all of this needs to be considered in order to achieve the proper or best result of the fade. That’s why it is very important to have the proper combination of the fade type and finishing.

Proper Fade Haircut and Finishing

Benefits of Facial Before and After

Senior Barber, Barber mo along with his Hairdresser Jayson talk about Skin Care and Facial.

 

There is a lot of different facial line targeting different skin condition and problems… One of the most common lines that we use is the Aquatherm for people who has sensitive skin and dehydration.

 

The main key ingredients of Aquatherm are from vegetable and plant extracts that’s why it is more suitable for sensitive skin. This will make the skin barrier stronger, restores the skins PH levels, reduces the sensitivity of the skin, and fights the early signs of aging. And also, we have the Hyaluronic, Power C, and Corrective treatment for our other facial line.

 

Here are some Tips and Advice on how to maintain your skin.

 

 

  1. Have a proper home care maintenance, like Cleanser, Toner, and Moisturizer, this is enough to get you through your daily skincare routine.

  3. Food helps in order to maintain your youth and healthy complexions like fruits and vegetables as part of your diet, and avoid fatty and oily foods that cause excess secretion on your face which helps to build up the blackheads and whiteheads on your pores.
  4. And last “Exercise” this will help you maintain a proper blood circulation at the same time helps you to reduce stress and mental fatigue which constitutes early signs of aging.

The frequency of cutting your nail is usually every 2 weeks, on that time you will see that your nail is already looking unmanageable, if you are the type of person who wants to look sharp and clean at most of the time then every week is possible, as long as you don’t go less this is to avoid going too short and cutting your nail beds.
